I Hate Monsanto!
The latter just got a bit easier, thanks to a new free app for android smart phones and iphones. It's called "Buycott", and according to Natural Society, it allows you "to analyze products and determine if you’re supporting Monsanto’s GMOs, Big Food companies who are damaging your health, or simply low quality products."
And if you also want to know if a company is a subsidiary of a big evil like the Koch brothers, then this will also help. NS says that "the App will trace the product all the way back to its ‘parent’ company, so you know exactly who you are supporting with your purchases. For example, did you know McNeil Nutritionals is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, who has continued to put carcinogenic chemicals in their products for years?"
The power of where we spend our limited dollars is rapidly becoming one of the few ways we have left to influence what happens in our corporate-controlled (aka fascist) nation, so arm yourself with information and buy accordingly. Meanwhile, if you want more information on how congress and its Monsanto buddies are working to make sure you don't get to know what you're buying, visit this page, which also links you to a letter to congress which you can sign onto.
